Those of you who have been reading here for awhile, know of my obsession with England. Past or present, it doesn’t matter, I’m obsessed. So it should come as no surprise that I have a slight *cough* crush on a certain prince who is right about my age. Actually, since I’m right smack in between both of them in age I should specify I prefer the older of the two. Though I’ll gladly take gossip on them both. And yes, I am up to date on the royal gossip. It’s a girl thing.
Anyway, there is a book coming out that I really want. And this post is here to bring it to my mom and Pat’s attention. I’ve mentioned it to them both already. And well I don’t care who gets it for me as long as it’s under my tree Christmas day. Anyway the book is called William and Harry:Behind Palace Walls and it’s written by Katie Nicholl. And well, I really really want it.
My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and for the most part I’m all meh about it. See this year it’s on Thanksgiving day. And I’m working that holiday. Probably a full 8.5 hour day. And well, I guess that kind of sucks. It’s what I get for working at a grocery store. I guess I’ll get holiday pay. But really, my birthday will be just another day. I don’t have any presents coming my way. My mom gave me my lens early so I could shoot the wedding. And well, Pat doesn’t have money to get me anything. Which is fine. Same old same old. So it really will be just another day. Which is kinda how I like it anyways.
Christmas is shaping up to be fairly quiet too. We are taking care of the boys and that’s it. There is no extra to spend on each other. Mom is giving me my gift early. She is buying me work pants and work shoes. Again with the needs, it’s never about what I want anymore.
All this is to say: I guess why that’s why this book is so important to me. I don’t need it. But I really really want it. So having it under my Christmas tree would be really nice. I’m really hoping someone will do what they don’t have to do and buy it for me.

Awww, crappy birthday…ick! So, you are a Scorp too? Heh, that explains alot about both of us! ;)
Years ago, (when i was probably your age), i was obsessed with England too. You would be impressed with My POW books.
Now Israel is my obsession. Things do have a way of changing.
You'd better get that book!
Nah, I'm a sag but only by like 2-3 days.
